My Dog Walk Patch Count was smashed this afternoon with 22 species on the round trip to WHIE. Me and The Pup had 13 by the time we reached the end of Horton Burn, the best being three Bullies and a Coal Tit (I haven't seen one for many months).
In the Estate itself, more relevant was what was NOT seen - Jay, Buzzard, Redwing, Fieldfare and Rook. No Blue Tits seen or heard along the route either. Got a glimpse of the Quick Brown Fox as it ran east to the north of the smaller Flash.
Dozens of Teal on the Flash or in flight, the usual gulls present, along with a pair of Mistle Thrushes. Nothing to get too excited about, but a pleasant 80 minutes nonetheless.
